Stuffed Pepper Soup


Easy, kid friendly soup

Bell peppers, chopped tomatoes and lean ground beef are simmered in broth with onions and garlic, then topped with brown rice – everything you love about stuffed peppers, in a soup!

I love soup weather – and the convenience of a making a big pot of soup that can serve as several meals. I first posted this recipe back in 2011 and it's been a huge hit with everyone, including both of my kids –  they just loved it! I decided to make a pot this weekend and gave this a photo makeover.


This is a hearty bowl of soup that will fill you up and warm you on a chillynight. I guess you can call this a lazy stuffed pepper because it tastes just like a stuffed pepper without all the extra work. Topped with brown rice it's a satisfying meal. Heck, if you wanted you could even make this with ground turkey, and top it with shredded cheese. Have fun with this one!

  9. This looks delicious! I love stuffed peppers, but sometimes hate how labor intensive it is! I am def. going to have to give this a try!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh my gosh! Stuffed peppers are on the menu for tonight! May need to try this instead. Thanks as always for great recipes. :)

  11. Gina, you are awesome!! Thank you so much for answering my request. I cannot wait to try this. I am going to the store tomorrow so I will definitely be making it this week. I could hug you!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I just made this soup last night and my recipe was almost identical to yours. My family loves it!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Gina, I am unable to digest beef so will the points change if I exchange ground turkey or ground pork for the lean ground beef?

    ReplyDelete
  14. How can I make this vegetarian? Would it be OK to substitute Veggie Stock and omit the meat? Thanks :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. this is my husbands favorite soup

    ReplyDelete
  16. This is so tasty sounding! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love the concept. Looks delicious! I do love me some stuffed peppers.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Points include the rice! Quinoa or orzo can be used in place.

    Oh and don't make the mistake of cooking the rice in the soup or you'll get mush!

    You can use ground turkey or vegetarians could of course use crumbles! Perfect night for a hot bowl of soup, enjoy!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. And now I know what I'm making for dinner next week!

    I love all of your soup recipes: they are so easy to make (and even easier to make vegetarian, I just have to double check points), and because I only need four servings for my work week, I always have some to freeze. I swear, at some point in January or February I'm going to open my freezer and find I have a month's worth of meals already in there :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. That looks so wonderful and filling. Can you tell I'm waiting for dinner to cook?

    ReplyDelete
  21. This was dinner tonight! Yummy! And it did taste just like a stuffed pepper!

  25. yummy.. i love to try that.

    ReplyDelete
  26. thanks so much for sharing, gina! stuffed peppers are my fave, but you're right, it takes forever to make it....so this is perfect. one thing though, do you think it'll make a difference if i cook this on a crackpot (I'd brown the meat first, as always...)?

  27. Oh oh oh this sounds wonderful!!! Since one of our favorite recipes is your Turkey Stuffed Peppers, I think I'll make this with ground turkey instead of beef.

    Absolutely can't wait to have a steaming bowl of this!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hot dam! I already made two of your recipes last week, and now I need to make this! My Husband and I love Stuffed Peppers, but it's kind of a pain in the butt, but not this soup! I am try this recipe this week! Love your blog!!!!

  30. Can't wait to try this!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Could I use fresh diced peppers instead of canned?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Unfortunately, I don't have the Points Plus program and don't know how many I get now, but everything looks delish. Thanks for your website!

    ReplyDelete
  33. We have a similar recipe in Serbian and Greek cuisine...it's fabulous to see a healthy and tasty spin on it. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Stuffed peppers are a family favorite of mine - I'll have to try this interesting spin out on them now!

    ReplyDelete
  35. This looks delicious! I love the idea of a deconstructed stuffed pepper. Especially in a soup! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. This looks SO amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing your recipes!!!

  37. I want to make this soup but want to make it in the crock pot instead. Do you think this can be done, if so how long would I cook it? Your recipes are so delicious tasting and can't wait to make this soup.

  38. This calls for fresh peppers, not canned.

    I think this would be great in the crock pot after you sauté everything!

    Made this tonight for dinner! It was really good!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Made this last night for supper and it was GREAT! Next time I am going to try it as Mexican stuffed peppers!

    ReplyDelete
  41. We don't eat beef, Can I substitute ground turkey or ground chicken?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hi Gina, do you use the canned tomato sauce without any seasoning or a jar of tomato sauce that is seasoned in the pasta aisle?

    ReplyDelete
  43. This was delicious! We doubled, maybe even tripled the amount of bell peppers and it was just that much better!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Made this for dinner on Monday night, leftovers as lunch for the rest of the week and some in the freezer! It was delicious! I think next time I might add some water to give it more "broth." Fantastic creation!

    ReplyDelete
  45. So I made this tonight and it was excellent. If you really like bell peppers (like I do) I would add 1 cup of each. I also added black beans and corn. Once I added the rice, it was amazing and all the flavors rolled together!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I loved this! My soups usually turn out not so great but this tastes amazing! I added corn and red kidney beans to mine to make it even more filling. Also a dash of red hot really makes the soup.

    ReplyDelete
  47. This soup was so good! Can't believe how much you get for only 7 points! So filling! Love your site! This is where I look everyday to see what I'll be making for supper! Thanks so much for all your great recipes!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Gina, I love this recipe, it was soooo delicious.
    I used turkey meat, and vegetable broth

    thank you

    ReplyDelete
  49. I used unseasoned tomato sauce. Ground turkey would work for those of you who don't eat beef.

    So happy you all liked it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Thanks to your great recipes I have been on a soup kick this past week. I just made this tonight (super delicious. my husband had two bowls and he hates peppers), and i made both the chicken pot pie soup and baked potato soup dairy free (using almond milk). they all turned out incredibly delicious. what i love about your recipes is that they are easy to follow and easy to substitute ingredients if need be. thank you for helping us eat healthy and fantastic food. i also love the incredible variety of your recipes. thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Made this last night for dinner. Loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Just made this for lunch with ground turkey. WOW. Now my husband can't decide if this will move ahead of your Meatball and Spaghetti Soup as his favorite! Please keep your tasty, simple soup recipes coming; one a day for the rest of winter would be great! I should have kept you a secret as everyone asks if my great new dishes are from my "skinny friend"! Thanks so much for making sensible eating healthy and delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Made this tonight but used ground turkey and ended up using 1 qt. of chicken broth. (I like it "soupy". Excellent flavor even with the turkey substitute!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Donna, glad you liked it... One a day? Lol I have so many in the archives!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Kakit, thanks!! Sounds like You picked some good ones!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I just made stuffed peppers tonight and they were good, but I wish I'd seen this earlier. It looks delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Made this tonight (with wild rice since we were out of brown) and it was excellent! Even my 2 year old liked it - and my husband was able to kick his own personal bowl up a notch with red pepper flakes. Another great recipe - thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I have this in the crock pot as we speak - the taste test was wonderful! Can't wait until lunch!Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Just made this! It is Yummy and the serving size is almost too much!

    ReplyDelete
  60. This was so delicious!! Thank you for all of your great recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I made this last night and it was amazing :) I was wondering gina how many points is it for just the serving of soup without the rice?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Went ahead and made this tonight (didn't end up using ground turkey like I'd planned)... and just as I thought - it was fantastic.

    First, this was one of the easiest soup recipes I've ever made - especially given how hearty and tasty it was.

    Second, we actually enjoyed this even more than the turkey stuffed peppers - something we didn't believe possible since that's one of our favorite meals.

    I did end up using closer to 2 C. peppers total, at my husband's prompting.

    We also sprinkled a couple of tablespoons of finely shredded mozzarella on top of each serving.

    You know Gina, I've probably made 30+ recipes from your site at this point. I'm a super picky eater, and there hasn't been a single one I've made and then not liked, or not wanted to make again. Your site is what has made Weight Watchers possible for me.

    I (and my family) appreciate you more than you will ever know!

    ReplyDelete
  63. So Yummy! I made this yesterday in my crockpot. I substituted the beef for venison and used 5 grain rice and it was so delicious! I will be making this one again!

    Thanks for the amazing recipes.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I made this soup and it came out great!! Used all red peppers since I didn't have green, a shallot to supplement the leftover half an onion I was using, and I pumped up the flavor with extra seasoning - lots more salt and pepper, an extra sprinkle of marjoram, and some thyme, garlic powder, and adobo. It came out so tasty and the portion is so generous. I would definitely not skip the rice, it added to the flavor and texture of the soup! Had some for lunch and dinner and have the leftovers in the freezer :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Made this tonight and it was delish. I added a little fennel, bay leaf and white pepper to spice it up a bit. So good! Thanks so much for making my meal planning so easy every week! I probably cook one of your recipes at least 4 times a week!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi Gina,

    This soup looks wonderful! I just bought a pressure cooker and I was wondering if this recipe would work? How long do you think it would take? I know you love your pressure cooker, and reading about it was one of the things that prompted me to buy one. I absolutely LOVE it!

    Thanks :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. I probably wouldn't make this in my pressure cooker since it cooks so quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  68. This was delicious! I thought it needed a little heat so I added a dash or so of Cayenne pepper. I absolutely love this recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I'm making this tonight :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. This was amazing! My husband doesn't like stuffed peppers, but likes stuffed pepper soup from Portillos so he said he would try this. He said it tasted exactly like the Portillos version! I used oregano instead of majoram because I didn't have any.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I doubled this recipe and froze most of it...it was AMAZING and reheated fabulously!! I also gave some to a friend who was going through a difficult time and she loved it as well. Thank you so much for making it easy to follow the weight watchers program and for sharing recipes that both my restaurant manager/food critic husband and 2 toddlers love. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  72. I made this soup a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love with it. I have already made it again. My husband even loved this soup. He said it was a good "fat kid treat". Little does he know it is low in fat! I did add more meat on the second batch for the hubby, but it works well with just the 1 lb it calls for.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I made this and really enjoyed it. I added extra garlic and some crushed red pepper to it. This was really filling! It will make for great lunch leftovers. Anyone know if it freezes well?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Very good. I think next time I will only use one can of tomatoes and perhaps a little less tomato sauce. I doubled the bell pepper as well.

    ReplyDelete
  75. i love to make soups that i can freeze for lunches or a quick meal. do you think i should freeze it with the rice oradd that in after defrosting it? thanks! can't wait to try it!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I would freeze it without the rice. If you add the rice, it will expand and soak up the liquid from the soup.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Made this yesterday with ground turkey and it was delicious and filling! Will try to add celery next time

    ReplyDelete
  78. There are some really nice flavours going on in this soup!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Made this tonight and it was great!

    I used 2 whole peppers (1 red, 1 green) and 1 whole onion -- all diced finely -- and didn't bother measuring how much that equaled in cups. Seemed a little thick when I added all the ingredients together so I added maybe 3/4c water and simmered for closer to an hour. Topped with fat-free feta for a little creaminess.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I'm a vegetarian and made this with veggie ground beef and vegetarian chicken stock. Came out delish!! Also I used oregano instead of marjoram.

    ReplyDelete
  81. This soup was wonderful, Thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Just made this and it is wonderful! Gina, thank you for sharing your gift of making delicious/guilt free food with all of us!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I love stuffed cabbage more than stuffed peppers. Think I could switched out the peppers for cabbage?

    ReplyDelete
  84. I made a big pot of this (multiplied the recipe x2) for some friends that were coming over last-minute. They absoutely LOVED it! Even the pickest eater of the bunch had a second helping. I served it with brown rice, cheese, tortilla strips and a big pan piled high of grilled cheese sandwiches. Yummo!!

    ReplyDelete
  85. And this will be dinner!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Gina, This was delicious! I made it today and had some for dinner, without the rice. I have frozen most of the leftovers so I can have them at a later time. Tomorrow I am making your crock pot chicken taco chili - for the first time. I have made MANY of your recipes!!! Thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  87. This is the first skinnytaste recipe I have made, and it was delicious! Actually, I had my 13-year-old son make it and all the kids loved it. Thank you! I'll be trying more of your recipes.

    ReplyDelete
  88. My husband loved this and even asked if I would put this our dinner rotation. Thank you so much becasue this is 10x easier than actual stuffed peppers! I cooked the rice seperatly but added to the soup at the end and it was delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Delicious! Made this today for lunch and even though I cooked brown rice to go.with it. It didnt need it... My 6 year old loved it... The two year old not so much.. its usually reversed.. thanks for sharing!!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Made this for dinner and it was wonderful. I was so happy with this dish because the ingredients were all things i already had in my kitchen and because i was able to make this in abut 15 minutes. I did simmer mine for about an hour, but that was the only thing i did differently.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Just made this and eating some now....Yummy....taste just like my stuffed peppers, thank you! It tastes like it is so much more fattening than it is! Love your recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  92. This recipe was delicious!!! Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  93. This recipe was absolutely wonderful, as have been every recipe of yours I have made. I now make at least 2 recipes of each recipe that I remake and freeze them individually. I think I just about double every recipe before trying it because they are always spot on! Thanks for all of your hard work on this blog and these recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  94. This was my first recipe from your blog...found it through Pinterest! Thank you so much for all your hard work in creating and posting these wonderful recipes! We have loved every one I have made! What a blessing to find your recipes to help begin 2012 with healthy eating! These recipes have now been added to our menu rotation! The Lord's blessings on you, Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  95. DELICIOUS! So flavorful. To include the rice in the soup rather than on top of soup: I added a package of Trader Joe's frozen brown rice for the final 15 mins or so of simmering (just to let the rice cook) and it was perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Another winner Gina-My family loved it!! In fact they'vd loved everything I've made from the site. again keep up the good work.

    ReplyDelete
  97. We had this for dinner last night and it was excellent, as expected!!!! Trying to use up some old freezer stock, I used some 85% ground beef - only added 1 point+, still perfectly reasonable for dinner! Thanks for all your hard work -- we ALWAYS enjoy your recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  98. This is awesome! My whole family (including three little boys) LOVED it. In fact, I made it again two nights later with the rest of the peppers. Huge hit! Thanks for all of your wonderful recipes! Still meal planning from your site and down over 25 lbs!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Needed a little more liveliness for our taste, so we added a couple of splashes of Cholula and a pat of low fat cream cheese (lessening the skinnytaste factor, but well worth it).

    Definitely a good cold winter day soup.

    ReplyDelete
  100. this was delicious! to give it more flavor we used the diced tomatoes with jalapenos.

    ReplyDelete
  101. My husband made this tonight and it was great, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Just made this for dinner tonight, it was gorgeous! I live with my partner and our lodger and they went back for seconds! Its great to be able to cook healthy WW meals for me, and the boys can eat double portions no problem. I also served it with some homemade wholemeal bread, and white basmati rice. Thanks Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Just made this for dinner after finding the recipe on Pinterest--it is divine!!!
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Another fabulous recipe! I used orzo instead of the rice. I am going to have to get a bigger binder for my skinnytaste collection. Once again, you ROCK Gina! Thank you!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I made her turkey stuffed pepper recipe with lean ground beef and made extra's and the next day chopped up the left overs and added more fat free chicken broth and this was such a hearty soup!! The stuffed peppers was so good!!! I did use lean ground beef and skipped the olive oil and cooked the onions and garlic in with the meat then drained fat (very little) YUMMY!!! Got two meals out of this!!

    ReplyDelete
  106. stuffed peppers are my favorite meal - i could eat them everyday! a friend of mine shared this recipe with me & i was so excited to make it. it was super easy & SO yummy! i added some italian seasoning & a little cheese blend.. it was simply delicious! thank you so much for sharing this recipe, i cannot wait to try some more yummy dishes from this site!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Just made this tonight and did put in the crockpot after everything was sauteed. It was marvelous. Even my husband who detests peppers said it was the best soup he's ever tasted! Thanks again Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  108. I will totally make this again! We loved it, you're the best Gina!!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Loved!! I used ground chicken instead of burger. When serving I add a little cheese. So yummy and filling! Will certainly make again!

    ReplyDelete
  110. Hi Gina,

    This was another delicious soup. Yum, yum, yum!! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I just made this for dinner and it was DELISH!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  112. If I'm going to cook it in a crockpot for 10 hours, do I need to saute the peppers first? I always cook ground meat before putting it in the crock, but I don't usually cook peppers first.

    ReplyDelete
  113. HungryMomma1/25/12, 5:02 PM

    This looks delicious! I was thinking of maybe substituting the rice for shredded cabbage and it could be like a stuffed cabbage soup and that could reduce the points as well, I think. Can't wait to try it!!

    ReplyDelete
  114. Hey Gina, Just wanted to let you know that this is yet another of the hundreds of successes I have had in the kitchen thanks to your recipes.

    This soup was fantastic and I can't wait to eat it as leftovers.

    Posters say all the time that you should make a cookbook and I couldn't agree more. My family has had luck with blurb.com making all sorts of books. They look professional and allow you the freedom to create them entirely on your own.

    I know for sure they would sell if you made them.

    Just a thought.

  116. Gina, we loved this recipe! I did add some cayenne to it because we love spicy, and also I felt it was a little too "marjoram-y" for my taste, but the cayenne addition worked like a charm! I look forward to enjoying the leftovers. Thanks for another one that will be repeating in our household!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Hello,
    Loved this soup. Just to let you know, we used ground turkey, added some Worchestershire sauce for zest. For my vegetarian daughter I used lentils instead of meat. It was fantastic all around.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Made this today! Cooked up the meat and pepper onion mixture on the stove and dumped into the crockpot. Added the rice and rest of ingrdients. It smells wonderful and will make me a happy girl at dinner time and should make the boy happy too. I figure it'll be soft enough for him to eat should he want any since he has a dentist appointment.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I made this soup last night and the only change I made was to use ground turkey instead of beef. This soup was fantastic!! My husband and I both loved it and loved the leftovers that we had for lunch today even more! This is a keeper in our house for sure. Thanks for all of your wonderful recipes. I love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Any idea what the carbs are in this soup without the rice? thanks

    ReplyDelete
  121. Hi Gina! Again loving all your recipes. I am sharing them with just about all my friends, and my family is loving all the new dishes. And even more excited most of your recipies are on My Fitness Pal! Love it! Makes it so easy.

    I made this soup and it was fantastic. I also used 99% extra lean ground turkey and added a whole cup of both the red and green peppers. I love the veggies. I do have a question, what is the difference in the nutritional break down if you use ground turkey instead of the beef?

    Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  122. I also used ground turkey and added Kale! Yum!

  123. Made this for dinner tonight...turned out great! Thank you!

  125. I just made this for dinner...and it was delicious! I added some cumin, paprika and a dash of chili powder to give it a mexican flavor, and my family LOVED it! Thanks for posting such great recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  126. I thought this recipe was very bland. I added the following: 2-3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
    ½ tsp of garlic powder
    ½ tsp of onion powder
    1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

    With the additions its excellent!

    ReplyDelete
  127. I am currently watching my picky 2 year old son devour a bowl of soup. Impressive considering he often looks at the food in front of him and declares yucky without even trying the meal :)

    ReplyDelete
  128. Made this for dinner tonight. I was skeptical when I first put everything together in my dutch oven, but after the 30 minutes of stove-top simmering, it smelled just like stuffed peppers! Then I was concerned that it would be too thin, but adding the rice at the end makes all the difference. I left out the marjoram since we didn't have any on hand. Added plenty of fresh-ground salt and pepper. Super yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  129. Enjoyed by the whole family, including our picky 3 year old. The adults added a sprinkling of smoked paprika to our bowls, for another layer of flavor, but perfect as written for the kiddos.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I made this last night. It is delicious! Thanks, Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  131. This soup is in the process of cook right now and I can't wait to try it. I just hope it's filling for the man of the house! Also, walmart was out of marjoram so I used some cumin and chili powder instead

    ReplyDelete
  132. This soup was perfect for our cold and rainy Valentine's day yesterday. It was delicious! Made enough for leftovers tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Have this simmering on the stove now! I accidentally read the recipe wrong and put in 2 tsp of marjoram!!! I hope it still tastes good........

    ReplyDelete
  134. This looks absolutely yummy !!! I love stuffed peppers but my husband doesn't so if I make it into a soup he might not pick through it and for it to be healthy on top of that !!!

    ReplyDelete
  135. This recipe is so flavorful and hearty. My husband LOVED it! I was thinking that if I wanted to change it up, I could replace the peppers with cabbage and it would be like a deconstructed golumpki (stuffed cabbage roll) Yum! Great recipe - thanks Gina!

  136. I made this soup last night along with your ground turkey with peas and potatoes last night. I had this for lunch...omg AMAZING. I added 2 tbsp of flour to "thicken" it up and some grated parmesan cheese.

    The only suggestion is to make sure you sautee the pepper long enough. Mine came out a bit "hard" and I wish they were softer. Otherwise I'm a huge fan!

  137. My husband has begged for this every week since you posted the recipe. I keep all of the ingredients on hand anyhow so it is so easy to throw together.

  138. I made this tonight and I can't believe how easy, delicious and filling it was!!! And only 7 points? That doesn't seem right considering how full I am!!! The peppers were a little crunchy as the poster above noted, but I liked the texture of it. Also when you reheat it, they won't turn to mush that way.

    This was the first recipe i've made from your site but I can't wait to make more stuff!!!

  139. OMG! LOVED THIS!! My 15 year old took 1 bite and said Wow this is good! :) My husband liked it (and he's the pickiest eater I know!) 2 pans and 1 hour and dinner is done! That's my kind of meal! Thank you so very much!!

  140. I made this last night. It was kind of bland at first. I added a lot of seasoning and it was still kind of bland, maybe because I used frozen peppers.

    It tasted much better today for lunch, maybe it needed to marinate some lol

  142. Just LOVED this recipe. My husband wanted chili but I made this instead and he had two bowls!

    ReplyDelete
  143. I am making this right now. I added an entire red pepper and green pepper (I LOVE veggies...esp. peppers!). I accidentally grabbed a can of regular diced tomatoes instead of petite diced, but larger tomato chunks won't be a problem in our household! I'm not on WW, but do like to watch what I eat. My boyfriend, on the other hand, saw the word "Skinnytaste" and automatically assumed "diet food". Every recipe I've made from your site, however, has had him dashing for seconds and requesting to take the leftovers. Way to go, Gina! Thanks for all your hard work! :)

    first time skinnytaste poster and recipe maker! I forgot to buy tomato sauce at the store, but I happened to have a can of stewed tomatoes and a half can of tomato paste already. Didn't have the marjoram, but I added oregano, dried thyme and parsley. I also added celery, one of my favorites. Turned out great, thanks for the recipe!

  146. This is delicious! My brother is staying with me for spring break so we decided to make this tonight; needless to say, we are both fans. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  147. This is absolutely fantastic! I added some minced jalapenos and a bit of franks red hot to spice it up just a tad. It was so filling and very yummy. Can't wait to have the leftovers tomorrow. Another fabulous recipe - thank you Gina!!!

  148. Made this tonight and it went over big with my family on this cool evening. Still can't believe that big bowl in front of me at dinner was only 262 calories!

    Thanks, Gina. You ROCK!

    PS.. I did add one tsp. of Worcestershire sauce since I add that to my stuffed peppers, normally. It was a tasty addition. :)

  149. I made this soup today and it was so delicious. I only added 2 cups of rice but otherwise followed the recipe to the T. Thanks so much for a great recipe!

  150. i used ground turkey instead of beef, but used beef broth (mostly b/c i didn't have chicken) and it tastes great!

    ReplyDelete
  151. I made this again and love it!!! What i really love is if you're short on points for dinner, you can do 1/4 rice instead of half and knock a point off! And it still tastes great and is filling :)

    ReplyDelete
  152. great recipe, try adding a small bit of cumin and chilli powder for a deeper savory flavor. and if you love it spicy, substitute one of the bells for a hot serrano or habanero pepper and add in cayenne pepper powder.

    I just made this for dinner last night & had a whole wheat roll on the side. My husband & I LOVED this soup! And it was so filling. The only thing I added was a little cayenne pepper because we like it a little bit spicy, but it would have been wonderful without it. I will be freezing the leftovers in individual portions for later. And I will definitely make this again & again. I am sharing this recipe with EVERYONE! Thank, Gina. I love it.

  157. I came across your website via pinterest. I'm not on WW, but your recipes looked and sounded so good I just had to bookmark them. I was just about to give up on internet recipes as they always disappoint me, but tonight I made this stuffed pepper soup and it is amazing! I can't wait to try more of your recipes. Thank you for taking the time to take photos of your recipes. They are beautiful and motivate me to cook!

  158. I've been seeing your recipes on Pinterest and a friend recommended this stuffed pepper soup. I made it tonight and my whole family loved it!! I'm on WW to lose the last 10 so your website and recipes are going to be so helpful. Thank you and can't wait to make more of your recipes!

  159. Thank you for this recipe, it tastes just like stuffed peppers which is one of my favorite comfort foods. My kids and husband will not even try stuffed peppers, so sad for them. But I thought I'd be sneaky and serve this to them and see how it went. They all loved it. All of them. Like a miracle. Thanks so much for your website, it's helped me to lose 30 lbs since January this year. You are helping a lot of people!

  160. Made it this weekend - husband and I both loved it. Great for a rainy spring afternoon, too.

    ReplyDelete
  161. This was another hit. I was skeptical at first - when it was done simmering for the 30 minutes it still seemed watery and tasted bland. I added some tomato paste, Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes as suggested by other readers. I turned up the heat to boil off some liquid and then let it simmer for another hour. Oh my gosh - that did the trick! 30 minutes isn't long enough for the meat flavor to really get into the soup, but after the additional hour, it was so tasty. Hubby said at least 3 times how good it was.

  162. This soup is so delicious. To avoid the crunchy peppers that some people mentioned, I first sautéed the onions in 1 tsp of oil, then added the peppers & garlic & sautéed it all until everything was nice & soft. Then I put that mixture aside & cooked the meat (in the same pot), then added back the veggies & proceeded with the recipe as written. Ate it with quinoa the other night, but tonight I forgot to add it. Topped with green onion, grated cheddar, and a bit of sour cream. Delicious!

  163. This was awesome, will make again!

  164. This was the first skinnytaste recipe I tried, back in late March. It is the reason I keep coming back!!! Well, not entirely, but it's awesome! I froze several single sized servings - I'm eating one for lunch as I type this - and I noticed this morning that I have only one pack left in my freezer! Time to make it again. It's fantastic! There are times I take it to work, and have forgotten to cook rice the night before, but it's wonderful even without the rice!

    ReplyDelete
  165. I made the soup with left over peppers from Sausage and peppers, used yellow, red and orange - less heart burn that way. Wow this was delish. I also use a 90 second microwave rice put in 2 minutes before it went to the table, this was great. And left overs were even better.

  166. This is a favorite in our house. Also the Turkey Taco Chili Soup. Everyone loves it. Thank you Gina for helping me reach goal at WW. You have made cooking a really great experience for me.

  167. Just found your website and I've been drooling wondering around through all the yummies but THIS? I must have this NOW!!!! Off to check my cabinets. I think I have it all. Fingers crossed!!! ;-)

  168. I have made this wonderful soup 4 times already! I love it. The serving size is very hearty, and I never feel like I didn't have enough to eat! Thanks for posting, and I love that all the recipes have the WW+ points :-)

  169. yum! substitute quinoa instead of rice and turkey meat instead of beef!! delicious!!

  170. Another winner! I made this last night, hubby thought I was crazy, as it was a hot night, but its what was on the menu and I really wanted to try it. I made it with morning star veggie crumbles(and hubby didnt even know it, we would normally use ground turkey but I forgot to defrost), I also subbed the majoram for oregano and added some smoked paprika. Made with white rice, didnt have brown. topped mine with some lf sour cream & hubby put a slice of cheese in his. wow, awesome, and lunch today was even better!

  171. I was really looking forward to this soup, but was a bit sceptical about the serving size; I thought I was going to be ravenous afterwards! When I sat down to eat it my rice wasn't cooked, so I started anyway. About halfway through I added some rice.... holy crap! I was getting towards the end when I was really wondering how I'd eat another mouthful. It was SO filling! I wasn't a big fan of the soup to be honest. I froze a couple of batches in baggies and I've been having them with a sandwich for dinner (no rice!) lately so that I didn't have to turn the oven on. I must be a freak because as usual, they taste SO much nicer frozen, defrosted and then reheated. I'm really sad I didn't double the recipe. I definitely will next time. Delicious!

  172. I made this for dinner tonight. I used chicken and I used red, green and purple bell peppers. I also used stewed tomatoes. So yummy! My husband loved this. He kept going back to the crock pot for more. :) Thanks so much for all your wonderful recipes.

  174. I am right in thinking that this soup without the rice is 3 points?

    Help please!

    ReplyDelete
  175. This is delicious!! I made this with ground turkey and quinoa. Just for those wondering, i did freeze leftovers and reheat and it was delicious, and you can add the quinoa before freezing.... no problem, tastes as good as the day you made it!! Next step, I might try throwing it all in the crock and cooking all day.... I do that with my spaghetti sauce and I dont cook the veggies or meat ahead of time, I just add it in.... it makes the turkey meat very very tender cooked that way.

  178. I made the soup a few days ago. The only thing I added was a little oregano, but the soup really didn't have any flavor to it, so I wasn't really impressed.

    ReplyDelete
  179. I made this last night and it was soooo good! Even my husband said it was one of the best soups I have made. Will definitely make this again. I did add more green and red peppers, about a cup or so each.

  180. I've had this in my Pinterest food folder for quite some time, and I finally made it tonight. My husband and I flipped out. It is absolutely delicious!!! Thank you for posting this! This will be a regular in our house! :)

    ReplyDelete
  181. I made this today! But I didnt have diced tomatoes or sauce. So instead I used a small can of tomato paste and diced up some tomatoes. And wow. It smells amazing! We're about to eat it in about 10 minutes :) EVERYTHING I have made on this website is amazing. Thank you so much!

  182. I am a huge fan of stuffed bell peppers. For those of you looking to lower the calorie count, carbs or points - I use cauliflower in place of rice. I "rice" it using a cheese grater (since I don't have a ricer). My 15 year old son has never noticed the difference!!

    ReplyDelete
  183. I have tried several of your recipes but this is by far my favorite! My husband is a huge fan of this soup too. We love using fire roasted diced tomatoes, thyme instead of marjoram, and adding some sort of greens as well - of course adding more liquid as needed.

    I just made a pot last night with ground turkey and Swiss chard. Amazing!

  184. None of the stores around here have 95% lean ground beef. The best I can get is 93%. Will that change the points value?

    ReplyDelete
  185. Best soup recipe ever! I'm not a big fan of peppers but they are not overwhelming in the soup. This meal tastes even better as a left over.

    ReplyDelete
  186. Do you happen to know the PP value without the rice? Thanks! It's so yummy!!

  187. We loved this so much.We subbed ground turkey for the ground beef. It was SO good and filling and perfect for the weather cooling down. Honestly, you make this Weight Watchers journey so much easier for us. :)

  188. Pretty good. I had to make some subs to use what I had on hand but DH liked it enough to request I freeze some of the leftovers for his lunches and make it again. I used Italian style tomatoes and Thyme instead of Marjoram.

  189. This soup is so good....I'm making it again tonight!I searve it with quinoa and rice on the side.

  190. I've made this soup 5 times since finding it. I'm in the middle of compiling a list of my 10 favorite soups (for fun) and this one is currently #2. :-) I'm at your site tonight to look for more soups to try. Looking forward to it. :-)

  194. I made it for supper tonight. My husband raved about the taste and how much he liked the taste. This man is my meat and potatoes eater so I was happy to hear that from him.

    Thank you for the recipe.

  195. Loved this soup! I made it for dinner last night and it was fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  196. This is my second time making this recipe and my fiance and I love it! I did make two changes --

    I used ground turkey and I used cauliflower in place of the rice! I did some research and it seems like a popular alternative... definitely a calorie saving and GUILT-free option :) All I did was chop the cauliflower into small florets, place in my food processor, and pulse a few beats until it resembled rice! If you don't have a food processor you can use a cheese grater :)

    ReplyDelete
  197. Oh my goodness! This is excellent and it gets better the longer it sits! Family made so many mmmmmm noises during dinner, it was hysterical! Thank you Gina! Making a batch to take to friends this weekend!
